    TROJ_SMALL.ALT is a non-destructive trojan that is not currently spreading in the wild. This trojan propogates via email and is currently infecting systems that run Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000,and XP.

    This non memory-resident Trojan may arrive as an email attachment. Upon execution, it downloads a copy of itself as SVCHST.EXE in the Windows Temporary folder. It also downloads another malware from the following site: http://www.zaminb{BLOCKED}.net/ftp/file.exe

    This Trojan also saves the malware file in the Windows Temporary folder with an 8-letter random name, which Trend Micro detects as TSPY_AGENT.TX.
